Quality of the snow was excellent. I made sure to go on a weekday a day after it had snowed a bit and temps were low enough that the snow hadn't melted. The surface was as good as any I've experienced on the east coast. They had groomed most of it, I'm not sure if they can groom the very top of the mountain. The easiest run was very nice for beginners as it started very slow before getting steeper. In not much space they managed to have some good diversity. One run featured bumps that people were getting some decent air on. Runs were not super well marked, but it was easy enough to figure it out or to ask someone.
There was a pretty good amount of people there, lessons going on in the beginner area all day, and yet I never felt like I really had to wait in line. At worst I had to wait for maybe 5 chairs. As soon as there were enough people there to make such a line, they sent a mostly friendly woman out to help make sure we were loading the lift fully and not cutting in line. I felt they were committed to making sure we had the best experience possible.
The new management seems really invested in making this a good place to ski. I only ate a snickers bar and a gatorade, but I go to ski not eat. They were even selling little packets of smore ingredients that you could roast over the fire. I thought that was a neat creative touch. The lodge wasn't anything too special, but a better atmosphere than other cheap ski resorts I've experienced. If you want aspen, go pay for aspen. I don't want to pay more just for a fancy lodge.
Rental ski's were fine. I had no line. I have my own boots and they quickly adjusted their bindings to fit, no problem.
